I was going to talk about my challenge with poverty and what my plans were for getting out of it. Though it is near impossible to talk about for some reason. Is poverty so stigmatized in the world that even the poor can't freely talk about what it is like or what they plan to do to get out of it? I feel like I should not be saying or writing anything about what it is like and what my greatest fears are. I get the same feeling when I try and tell people what I am experiencing with my mental illness. Perhaps self censoring? This feeling could also be from what I see in the news and social media and how they portray it.
I might come back to this topic later today when I have built enough courage (don't know if that is the right word) and do another journal post.
Curious what you think or how you feel about poverty? Might help me be able to talk about and actually defeat it.
